It’s Colorado Cowboy Poetry Gathering Time!

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

2010 is starting out on a great note!  It’s Colorado Cowboy Poetry Gathering time.  Hope you will drop by and say Hi! if you are at the Gathering.

2009 was a great year as well.   I was honored when my latest CD, ROADS to COLORADO received the 2009 Will Rogers Cowboy Award for “Best Western Album” from the Academy of Western Artists. It’s got 12  songs, and a poem I wrote with Doris Daley.  All the great guitar tracks are done by the fabulous Mike Dowling!  www.mikedowling.com The title cut is the great song written by Michael Fleming of New West.

2 new CDs in progress! A Western Swing project with my good friend, fabulous fiddler, Ron Jones is one CD. It’s coming along, and we’ll let you know when it’s done!    I’m also working on another album of cowgirl songs and yodeling!

“Sweethearts in Carhartts” I’m working with Jean Prescott and Yvonne Hollenbeck! This is a fun show of poetry, music and collaborations about Ranch Women!   We’ve been well-received at some festivals, are ready to roll!    For bookings:  Jean at 325-583-2553   www.jeanprescott.com

Liz Masterson and the Cactus Crooners – yes, I started this group in 1984, and we’re alive and kickin’ with Western Swing for all occasions!

Corn Beef Wranglers – Cowboy Music with a Celtic Twist!  I’m enjoying playing with this new band that includes Julia Hays and Ron Jones on fiddle and Rock Eggen on accordion and tin whistle.  We’ve had some nice concerts and festivals this year, and looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day!

Music of the Civil War – I’ve got a show for schools and cultural centers with Rex Rideout. He is a great old-time musician, plays a variety of instruments and is a walking historian.

Liz Masterson Solo – As much as I love collaborations with my musical friends, I also love the simplicity of working alone.   I’m continuing and expanding a variety of programs.
